Tonight, I have a brand new takkito to share with you. The Valentine's collection launches yesterday and this cool thermal polish was one of them. "Sweet Cheeks" is a peachy nude creme that shifts to a rosy mauve when cold. It really does look like blushing cheeks when the shift happens. The warm color is not a perfect skin tone shade as it is a little yellow, but when it is transition to the colder pinker shade it is very pretty. Transition was easy it didn't take extreme measures to shift. I was pretty cold in my house when I did these swatches. When my hands were warm the color was warm and then as my hands got colder the nice shift happened. I like the rosy mauve color that it is in it's cold state the best. So wearing this color in the winter/spring would be perfect. It's subtle and work appropriate but still girly and special. The formula was nice and not gritty like some thermals can be. I used two thick coats with a glossy top coat. If you do thinner coats than I do, you will likely need three for full opacity. Let's take a look at "Sweet Cheeks" from Takko Lacquer in its transition from warm to cold.
The launch of this shade (as well as the others in the small Valentine's Day collection) released this past weekend. They were all snatched up but don't worry, Sheryl will have a restock of them soon. Be sure to follow Takko on their social media outlets to be up to date in release and restock info. And stay tuned for news about a new international stockist in the works. Squee!
